Terms and Conditions
End User Terms of Service
We like to keep it simple! Here are the main points of our Terms and Conditions:
You have received an account to our “Bridge by Artivive” CMS according to your selection in the registering phase. There are 3 types of accounts: student/artist/business. Please note that registering for an account that does not match your position may result in us suspending your account and deleting the corresponding content:
- Student accounts are free for professors and students and are for educational and experimental purposes only.
- Artists accounts are for creatives and artists and limited to their own work. Additional artworks can be bought directly on the platform. The artworks can be used commercially for direct sale of your own artistic work or replicas thereof (prints, postcards, etc.) only if they are bought and marked as such. Commissioned works (as for museums, brands, municipalities, corporate, etc.) are considered business usage and are to be uploaded by these counterparts through their business accounts.
- Business accounts are for cultural institutions, museums, galleries, agencies, brands, corporations, municipalities, state institutions, etc. These are paid accounts and all content created by and for these counterparts are to be uploaded through these accounts.
- The use of our products and services are limited to the User and are not transferable; the User will refrain from allowing access to third parties (private or business) to their account, unless obtaining our written confirmation beforehand.
- Artivive retains the right to delete content that goes against Artivive’s art branding principles – explicitly purely commercial content aimed at advertising campaigns without any artistic input – and block the respective user.
- The User confirms that for all content uploaded he/she owns the intellectual property rights or has secured the intellectual property owner’s written confirmation prior to uploading said content.
- Only the User is responsible for the content uploaded and it should not violate European/Austrian or any applicable law.
- The content deleted by the User will be deleted latest after 7 days from all our server instances.
- Artivive will be not accountable for any alterations of digital material or any errors that can occur by using the product.
- The User is aware that the servers and services will be in constant development and in some very few cases it can come to short interruptions.
